Here is an idea. Why not put the day of the week in the title of each strip, along with the date ?It is not always obvious. It can help put the action into a better context.
It made me laugh when you just put 'meat' as something you ate... Something that would not normally be said anywhere else but Japan =D
I've been living in this country for over seven years now. My English has deteriorated so much... It's a miracle I can still speak in complete sentences.
I lived in Japan for 5 years, then went back to the US and talked to people like they were idiots. Now I am back in Japan and I can feel it slipping again... saying things like 'supermarket' or 'so-so' among other things never said in the US...
When people say, "How are you?" I seriously say, "I'm fine thank you, and you?" before I can stop myself. It's become a reflex.
